First UK bowel cancer patient gets radiotherapy during surgery via mobile device

A 58-year-old man has become the first bowel cancer patient in the UK to receive radiotherapy during surgery using a revolutionary mobile device. It was made possible through the use of Mobetron, which is the first portable system able to administer intraoperative electron beam radiotherapy (IOERT), an intensive form of targeted radiation given at the time of surgery to treat a wide variety of advanced cancers that are difficult to remove and treat.
